Activities

Activities

Throughout the year, Cadets are provided with the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of activities. Some of these are organised by the Squadron, whilst others are provided by Wing, Region and Corps training teams.

 

The activities outlined here are only a fraction of those on offer, but aims to provide an insight into the variety of activities that Cadets take part in. 

Adventure Training

A huge part of cadet training. The Air Cadet Organisation has two centres, at Windermere in the Lake District and Llanbedr in coastal Wales, both with stunning scenery. Rock climbing, abseiling, high-level hill walking, mountain-biking, canoeing, high rope work and sailing are all par for the course.

Camps

Normally held at Easter and during the summer, you get the opportunity to take part in these popular camps held at RAF stations around the UK.

 

In addition to this, there are opportunities to attend overseas camps, such as spending 10 days in Cyprus with fantastic weather, swimming, sailing, and maybe even see the Red Arrows practise their displays (they train there). Head to Germany where you'll visit a city or cemetery from the First and Second World Wars. You may even get to fly in helicopters - another exciting possibility for cadets.

If you achieve the Gold level award, there is a formal presentation ceremony, normally at St James's Palace, and where you’ll receive your Award in the presence of the HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Earl of Wessex.
